All of the bridges that cross the Grand Canal offer spectacular views and this one is no exception!
I imagine we all have some form of the Scalzi Bridge stuck in our mind when we think of Venice. The large and beautiful bridge rises high over the Grand Canal, creating an elegant structure between the buildings on both side. One of my favorite memories of Venice was sitting at the Canal's edge and watching the boats travel through as the sun went down.
It is beautiful scene and experince the Italy - gondola to see around Venice, although sometimese it smells not so goo.
Ponte degli Scalzi is one of the four bridges that crosses the Venice's Grand Canal. It connects the Santa Croce and Cannaregio sestieri, providing visitors with easier access to the Ferrovia railway station located in Cannaregio. Scalzi is not as architecturally unique as Rialto, nor does it have the splendor of Accademia's view, but it does provide quick access to two incredible sections of Venice.
The Ponte degli Scalzi spans the width of the the grand canal and is one of the most impressive bridges in the city.
We had to cross this bridge everyday from our hotel, to get to the Ferrovia station, its stairs are pretty tiring and the street market of fake bags and cheap tripods ruins it. I had a moment here taking great pictures at late night with long shutter speed with no one on the bridge.
The Ponte degli Scalzi is one of only four bridges in Venice to span the Grand Canal. The bridge, which opened in 1934, connects the sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. On the northern side, is the Chiesa degli Scalzi (Church of the Barefoot or Discalced Monks) and the Santa Lucia railway station. The southern side, Santa Croce, is close to the bus station Piazzale Roma.
